This is Astros account of himself, Regarding ATS mods..
have been asked several times why I stopped posting on Above Top Secret. The mods at Above Top Secret surely must have a difficult job to do if the
reaction I got from my postings is any indication.
Yup, he is right...being a Mod here must be hard work.
But, no matter how hard of a job it is, they STILL get the job done and find time to close threads that are unworthy of ATS standards.
Gotta applaud them.
I don’t envy them that role. Having said that, they have closed the only two threads I have started. In both cases preventing me from responding.
Both his threads were open for over 60 pages. He cut-n-pasted his fictional work on those threads, the same way he did on many other sites. Never once
did he respond to anyone asking him questions.
He was given a chance to answer everything, and failed to do so, time and time again.
He didn't come here to speak with us about something incredible. He came here to post his short-story that he wrote in his spare time.
He was given weeks in the spot light to explain himself. Now he posts that his threads died before he could explain anything?
He ignored over 150 members all asking questions daily.
And kept just advertising his blog and his gimmick.
This lack of response from me has then been used by many members of ATS as a basis for criticism of me.
You post the most sensational information in the history of mankind, and refuse to actually answer questions about it...
Yeah, I can see why many members called "phony" on this guy.
I have doubts he is even the real author. A good reason to not answer questions would be because the poster was just one of his little minions trying
to help him spread his product across the net.
Also, in explaining the last thread closure it was vaguely explained by a moderator that the thread was closed because I failed to provide information
He sure did.
Each and every single one of us could easily prove where we work, but who would care about many of our jobs?
This guy came in saying some seriously huge crap, and failed to even answer questions that proved he ever entered a single NASA building.
This has been interpreted by many ATS users to mean that mods had asked me for proof of my professional pedigree and I had failed to deliver. That is
wholly untrue. I received no such request from mods.
And he also delivered nothing but a story that had hundreds of factual errors and misunderstandings of basic technologies, never-mind more
He failed to back up his story. Plain and simple.
They must have been referring to my inability to produce the story of my last experience quickly enough for the audience. That seems to me rather
I was producing the document as quickly as I was able.
Whle he had hundreds of people waiting for his story that he insisted was being typed up for ATS to read...it was found that he already had the entire
story posted elsewhere.
He told us that time was a restraint and that he was trying hard to finish typing the story up for us all...but in actuality, it was already a
"finished product" and he was baiting us along.
He even told us clearly-
"I think now is a good time to take a little break and get my audience's mouths watering while they wait".
He even told us-
"he was excited to release his next installment for his audience"
Yeah...sounds like a guy who may have minutes, hours, days left to live before the CIA shows up to shut him up...
No really...take your time, advertise, go all over the net and share links to your new fascinating blog!!! Its ok if the government is looking to
silence you, take your time and make it fun for the audience!
Closing that thread and making that statement only furthered a negative perception of me.
Yes...a closed thread is to blame.
Not the hundreds of holes in his story that were pointed to and then ignored.
Not the weight of the situation.
Not the fact that the guy was often contradicting himself or producing work that was easy enough to debunk.
Nope...it was his thread closing that gave people a head's up on his level of shenanigans.
They have intentionally or unintentionally made it impossible for me to fruitfully participate on ATS at this time.
So...is he blaming the mods or the members for his inability to produce believable or provable work?
Liars always blame others.
Sorry, his thread was closed because he was making a circus out of his threads. He failed to speak to the audience and continued posting cut-n-pasted
clippings from a work he had previously written in full, while half of ATS's membership demanded he speak up and answer some very important questions
that resulted from mistakes or errors in his work.
Of course he is not going to tell his audience that on his blog...
He is going to blame others for his failure.
That's what dishonest people do.
Perhaps I will be able to again in the future, I would hope so. They are likely well intentioned, I have no reason to suspect otherwise, I just
can’t imagine my participation within that community at this time would be welcomed or rewarding..
We have members writing to us about the time they took a ride in a space ship.
We have members who write about how they are aliens from space.
We have members claiming to be the devil, God and the antichrist.
I can not see how this guy assumes he can't share his story here just the same.
Oh wait...I see WHY! He said it right here-
"I just can’t imagine my participation within that community at this time would be welcomed or rewarding"
HE WANTS A REWARD!!!
I see...this is a thing to produce rewards for him!
My bad...I thought he was trying to blow the lid off the fact that NASA was hiding something that was sent from space that could possibly be alien
But no...he is looking for a rewarding time on ATS.
Here I was thinking that he was trying to be a whistle blower and shed light on a secret that has been forcefully withheld from us. But no...he just
wants to "personally enjoy his time posting on ATS".
LOOK, if I had proof of aliens sending me data from space, I would KNOW that 99% of you would laugh at me. I also know that the 1% who took me
seriously would mostly be folks who would Believe anything at the drop of a hat.
But, this guy acts shocked at the result of so many people calling him a scammer.
What sane person would assume people would take him on his word on a site like ATS?
Surly nobody working at NASA.
You would be laughed at talking about this in Walmart...
You would think this NASA engineer would be more readably prepared for nay-sayers and skeptics.
Perhaps, you would even have come with some kind of proof, just to help ease the situation.
I think he was a bit hard done bye IMHO...
I think the guy was promoting his web-blog from the very second he got here. He even made his introduction just a glorified link to his blog.
He never once answered any questions and instead told us to go to his blog site for more info.
It was a bait and switch with no hitch.
Sorry...that may be enough for you to accept this guy. Not me.
I think his threads were closed too slowly and that he has already gained from his dishonest actions here. But hey, our Mods give people a chance.
He was given the rope.
And he was hanged by his own actions.
I'm not so glad that you are promoting his site here.
